What3Words

What3Words is a really simple way to talk about a location. 
Every part of the planet has been divided up into 3 metre squares and given a unique 3 word address that will never change. 
For example  ///bathwater.eggplants.summered are the 3 words assigned to the church in the village of St Josse close to our holiday rental. 

Why does this matter?

Three  word addresses are easy to communicate to family and friends and are as accurate as GPS co-ordinates. Post code systems are often not that accurate when a location is hard to find. In France this is even more useful as the Le Touquet postcode  62520 covers the entire town. If you have lost your friends on the beach use what3words to tell them where you are. For example if you said meet me at ///glimpse.stinger.freckled you would be in the middle of the beach in front of the Aqualud water park in Le Touquet.

For Our Guests

Of course  our main reason for telling you about this fun and useful technology is to help our guests find their way to our properties with the minimum of fuss. When you book with us we give you those precious 3 words that will take you right to our door.

Spring will shortly come to an end and we will all hopefully be enjoying a bit more freedom in the Summer sunshine. Spring has been marked by a period of confinement but France has seen some fantastic blue sky’s.

For the first time in 70 years of meteorological data, Le Touquet in northern France could lead the way in the sunshine records for this period, according to Météo France. Le Touquet has the most hours of sunshine for this period with 706 hours.  Flights are likely to be limited for the foreseeable future so why not start planning your beach holiday in Le Touquet.
Check our availability for July and August.

P & O ferries will from Wednesday 27th  May 2020 be requesting all freight drivers and passengers to use a face covering at all times whilst on board their vessels, unless eating or drinking. 

Many customers already have their own face covering/mask, and its is requested that they are worn whilst on board the ferries. P & O  appreciate that it may currently be difficult to buy a mask, and therefore until everyone is able to equip themselves, a complimentary facial covering can be provided on request by  P & O.

Le Touquet Beach Is Open

Le Touquet Kite Surfing

Le Touquet Beach Is Open

The beach of Le Touquet-Paris-Plages-de-Calais has just been re-opened under strict conditions.

The beach is accessible to all from 9am to 7pm, but under very strict conditions so that  physical distances are respected.
As  the Pas-de-Calais department is still in the red zone, these measures are essential to limit the spread of the virus.

Thus, the beach of Le Touquet-Paris-Plage is divided into three distinct parts:
The Northern part, which remains closed to the public (Baie de Canche Nature Park, dunes, dune paths and Thierry Sabine pine forest forbidden). The Centre part open to the promenade only: (from the Saint Jean II car park to the descent of the Bertrand Lambert nautical base); No staying in one position or putting towels down, no swimming, no beach games, no groups of more than 10 people.
The southern part is open to individual sports (from the descent from the Bertrand Lambert base to Stella): running, kite surfing, windsurfing, paddle, longe-côte; Here too, no static position, no swimming or grouping.

Dogs, even on a leash, are forbidden on the beach.
The accesses/exits to the beach will be by differentiated and one-way flows.

The beach will be monitored to ensure compliance with government and municipal measures: in addition to video surveillance.  Throughout the beach, prevention officers will be present every day between 9am and 7pm, with reinforcements for public holidays and weekends.
The role of these beach ambassadors will be to ensure compliance with the rules. 
They will be identifiable by their T-shirt bearing the logos of the communes of Le Touquet, Cucq, Merlimont and Camiers (which provide the joint beach surveillance service).
They will be in permanent contact with the Centre Rescue Station where two agents will also be in charge of beach surveillance.
This system will be reinforced by ASVP patrols on the seawall and in connection with the National Police services.

 

Focusing on Positive Emotions

Being Positive In Le Touquet

Positive Emotions

With millions of people the world over entering isolation to fight against the spread of Coronavirus COVID19, the need for positivity becomes even more critical.

From positive emotion springs happiness. Focusing on positive emotions is more than smiling: it is the ability to remain optimistic and view one’s situation from a constructive perspective. While the Coronavirus world makes optimism a challenge, there are things you can do to stay optimistic:

1. Limit your access to social media and news: listen to or read it once a day to keep informed and so that you are not constantly bombarded with bad news – switch off your news feeds, talk radio and email alerts.
2. Take time to appreciate your home and those who are with you: write a daily list of three or more things in and around your at home for which you are grateful and share your gratitude with others.
3. Take time out to properly enjoy your coffee breaks; now is an excellent opportunity to have proper conversations, face-to-face or remotely – steer the conversation away from Coronavirus or agree at the start that it’s a banned topic.
4. Share the joy and satisfaction of others in your home express in their work and play.
5. Take a new perspective on daily tasks such as cooking and look for the joy in spending time preparing something, however simple, for others and yourself.
6. Dream about and plan a holiday – Perhaps in Le Touquet.
